energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet. these are the indicators of crisis, subject to data and statistics. less measurable, but no less profound is a sapping of confidence across our land. a nagging fear that america owes the decline is inevitable, but the next generation must lower its sights. today i say to you that the challenges we face are real. they are serious and they are many. they will not be met easily or in a short span of time, that know this, america -- they will be met.

but no one can ignore drought and powerful storms. a path toward sustainable energy sources will be long and difficult. america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot see the technology that will power new jobs and industries. we must claim it promises. that is how we will claim our vitality peart our forests and waterways, are snowcapped peaks. that is how we will change our planet. that is what will end to our creed. we the people still believe that in during security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. our brave men and women in uniform, it tempered by the flames of battle are unmatched in skills and courage. our citizens, feared by the memory of those who have lost know too well the price that is paid for liberty. this will keep a vigilant against those that would do us harm. we are heirs to those who won the people. we must carry those lessons into this time as well. we will defend our people and uphold our values through strengths of arms and rule of law. we will show courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peaceably not because
the president does not spend a lot of time, effort, or energy on. >> do you agree with that. >> if you look at the deal with congress, they tried every other relationship, the obama, the reed-mcconnell relationship but it was the biden relationship that set it off. he know he how to run a meeting. he runs through them. that's how you run a meeting. he know he how to do that. >> recently the president at a press conference had to say i'm a friendly guy, i'm a people guy, but joe biden really is that. >> joe biden is. and joe biden's excesses of being a people person and gregarious and enormously approachable, have been very important to this administration and to what david pointed out what happened, particularly in the last couple of months. briefly, we always here this is the most important vice president in the history of the world. how does he rank as vice presidents go? >> he actually just may be -- this may be one of the rare occasions where the superlative applies. we heard it about dick cheney in a different way. cheney, you had a sense -- cheney was in many ways provided the intelle
other sub budgets and a permanent energy. domestically, we have a much higher unemployment rate in 1968. we have more poverty absolutely and relatively and 1968. we certainly have more home foreclosures and more consumer debt. of course, 30 million workers are making today less than the workers made in 1968 adjusted for inflation. that is why we're launching this national drive to overpower congress and split the republicans in congress, organized and what the democrats, so tens of billions of dollars are poured into the community, into the long deserved pockets of these people, many of whom have children and they don't have health insurance or paid sick leave or big vacations. but they deserve $10.50 minimum wage, which is what it would be in 1968. no big deal. >> explain how that would work, how does an increase in the minimum wage actually work? >> 1, congress can pass it for all of the states. there is no competition between the states that way in terms of wage levels, no competition between businesses, etc. everyone would have to pay the same minimum wage. the other way is what has
smiles, grins, lots of big energy among the folks who are here. some have come from all over the country and all over the world. we talked to people from as far away as poland here this morning. i can tell you capitalism is alive and well down here on the street. they are selling barack obama everything. we saw scarves, hats, buttons, pins. i will say some of the vendors told us because the crowds are smaller than they were four years ago, they said business is off a little bit from what they had expected because they sold so much merchandise four years ago. but they are very entrepreneurial here on the streets of washington, d.c., and they're moving a lot of goods today as well, tyler. >> all right. let's listen once again. thank you very much. as the brooklyn tabernacle choir concludes "the battle hymn of the republic." the musical selections will take a turn towards more popular performers in our next hour. kelly clarkson, who is known for her sort of anthemic songs and beyonce. >> before that we have james taylor. >> and james taylor "america the beautiful." >> someone i recognize, s

of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it! >> all right. so, for david maraniss, for some inside the echo chamber, there might have been some concern that there wasn't enough reaching out by the president to republicans on spending, on fiscal issues. but isn't this speech, the second inaugural, more to lay down markers for even generations to come, and then we have the state of the union, where perhaps he can address some of the short, and i mean, in the grand scheme of things, the short-term issues that our country faces. >> i think that's true. and i also think that this speech was ideological, but he's a pragmatic president. and so i think that not everything that he said in the speech -- you know, he said that it's going to be imperfect. the solutions will be imperfect. he's not going to try to please every constituency. if he just took climate change, for instance, and energy, i wouldn't doubt that he'll approve the keystone
legislation post-columbine did not pass. so the notion that everybody should rely on quote-unquote the energy and force of newtown i would caution not to do that. it's clearly galvanized the country to have an honest conversation and look internally and have a serious conversation, but brady bill and the assault weapon ban were done without, quote-unquote, a columbine or what happened in virginia, any of those incidents. i do believe just in the last four years or i would say the last eight years of politics this, what happened there has made all of us have a discussion that has been sitting on the sidelines or the periphery of politics to be focused and this, obviously, tomorrow morning the president's going to introduce his legislation or his package and decide what legislatively he's going to do, what he's going to do by executive order. but we are at a tipping point to have a discussion that's been postponed, delayed or for whatever reason hasn't happened. but my small kind of flashing yellow light of caution is when you think of the last time we had success which goes back to '93 and '94
each of your cities and towns, energy, infrastructure, budgets, finances, crime. and i want you to know that we, the president and i, and the important part of that is the president, continues to be absolutely committed to do all we can to help the cities deal with the immense problems that get thrust upon them as a consequence of diminished tax bases, as a consequence of housing, a significant portion of the public and the states that are in the most need. we are committed to having a third phase of the so-called big deal in the budget. we're of the view that just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop. the economy in great shape and move toward a balanced budget. it started off in three phases. it started off with president bush's actions, the first president bush in terms of taxation before president clinton took office. and then the actions the president took in 1994 and then in 1997. well, we think there is a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt to g.d.p., our deficit to g.d.p. down around 3

-- guest: it is a subject that should be looked at. the house energy and commerce committee is going to be taking a look at the mental health aspects of this, as well as other committees like the judiciary committee. certainly i would like to know more about what' drugs do to prevent iraq behavior, but if this individual believed -- prevent iraqi behavior, but if this individual believes they can cause these problems, we should be looking at that as well. host: tennessee. caller: i believe that any order aaimed at guns is always ended a law-abiding citizens. ithis administration flooded the market with guns for criminals and it seems like he wants to control this country. one other comment i could make -- i heard that he will be surrounded by children when he makes his announcement. i remember that during the gulf war, saddam hussein surrounded himself with children, too, and that was a chilling video. those children were scared to death. thank you very much. guest: the caller makes a good point with regard to focusing on criminals. unfortunately, the bureau of alcohol, firearms is i
in front of him on issues like energy and climate change. and of course on guns which is an issue that events have pushed to the forefront. he's going to have a rough time getting that priority through the congress. >> you mention immigration being one of those big-ticket items, of course, health care was the signature big-ticket item of the first term. what else is on the list this time around? >> well, he's got immigration, he's got overseeing the implementation of the health care law which, of course, hasn't really fully taken effect. he's got energy and climate which is really the big undone story from the first term. he did not get that cap and trade bill. and he's not going to get it which means he's going to he is going to have to turn to regulatory and executive authority to achieve some of his goals there. and because of newtown, and other events, he has seen priorities change, and he laid out an agenda that will be difficult to achieve. that's why he is also trying to use executive authority as much as he can. >> how much time is there to achieve an agenda? is it really
career, what has always given me energy, hope is that good and decent and resilience and strong the american people are. the theme of this year's inauguration is our people, our future. i believe that when our people are succeeding, when they have the tools they need to get a grade education, get a good job, look after their kids, have some basic security, that there is nothing that can stop america. two figures i admire probably more than anybody in american history is dr. king and president lincoln. for me to have the opportunity to use the bible they used on the 105th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation and the 50th anniversary of the march on washington is fitting. their actions and the movement they represent are the only reason that it is possible for me to be inaugurated. it is also a reminder for me that this country has gone through tough times before but we always come out on the other side. we're constantly perfecting our union and making it more fair. we want everybody to have a fair shot in this country. if you work hard, you can make it. regardless of wher
in education and research and development, innovation. to get control of the energy future. all of that will be a part of the president's vision for the next four years. >> you know, bob schieffer mentioned earlier this morning the tragedy in newtown, connecticut, the president is proposing a number of changes to the gun laws in this country. how much a part of the president's resolve will that be in the months coming? >> well, the thing -- the president always said that, you know, you have to do many things at once when you're president, and that's a very important thing. we can't keep replicating these tragedies and it's not just the big tragedies, but the small, smaller strategy dtragedies than the streets every day. so he's determined to move forward on this package of laws. they're not the only things we need to do. some of the things have less to do with government and more to do with what we -- what we do in our home. what our children play and in terms of video games and what they watch. but certainly we need to do something about guns. we are hopeful that we're at a mom
